In the realm of healthcare and education, the journey towards becoming a professional nurse is nothing short of an adventure. For aspiring nurses in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the year 2023 brings an opportunity to embark on this very journey. The Jammu and Kashmir Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (JKBOPEE) has paved the way for candidates to enter the Post Basic B.Sc. Nursing Course, and the counseling schedule for this significant leap has been unveiled.
In the month of August 2023, the JKBOPEE, through Notification No. 071-BOPEE dated 26-08-2023, announced the results of candidates who had undertaken the Common Entrance Test on 20-08-2023. Candidates were advised to submit objections, if any, within three days of the notification’s issuance. However, no objections were received within the stipulated time frame, rendering the rank wise list annexed to Notification No. 071-BOPEE of 2023 dated 26-08-2023 as final.
